our summer made her light escape into the beautiful...

'as imperceptibly as grief
the summer lapsed away, -
too imperceptible, at last,
to seem like perfidy.

a quietness distilled,
as twilight long begun,
or nature, spending with herself
sequestered afternoon.

the dusk drew earlier in,
the morning foreign shone, -
a courteous, yet harrowing grace,
as guest who would be gone.

and thus, without a wing,
 or service of a keel,
 our summer made her light escape
into the beautiful.'

~ emily dickinson

happy autumnal equinox.
